I finished my first book of 2004 today while I ate lunch and the McBaby snoozed.
Finished Muriel Spark's Loitering with Intent. We had read The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie in book club, and I liked her style. So, I picked this one out of the clearance bin at Half Price Books the other day.
Not a bad book. Very interesting insight (autobiographical, I assume) about what it's like to be a writer--how voices, situations, postures, phrases stick in your head to be used later.
A friend gave me the three Kristin Lavransdatter books on Sunday. I started the first one last night while CAS and Zteen were playing Madden football, and was immediately sucked in.
But I'm supposed to be reading P.D. James!!!
OK, do you think it would just be TOO nerdy to start keeping a list of what I read with notes on each book? Or is that taking Litermania just too far?
